Update: 2019-11-221


The big question revolving around this case is...Can you commit murder in your sleep? It seems crazy, and well, very unlikely. However, in this episode we will cover one of the most controversial cases of sleepwalking homicide... A Canadian murder which happened in may of 1987 was executed by a man who claims he was sleepwalking drives for miles and attacks his own mother and father in-law. When we first heard this case, we couldn't believe his defense was taken seriously, because, sleepwalking… really.. I have never seen someone actually sleep walk but I've been told I have walked in my sleep..

Anaheim investigator Julissa Trapp is not like other detectives. She’s the only woman on the homicide squad, and a skilled chameleon: undercover cop in vice stings, crime-scene commander, patient confidante of killers. A master interrogator, she invokes her personal experience – and deepest griefs -- as a tool to elicit confessions. When a young woman’s body is found at a trash-sorting plant, Trapp learns the murder may be linked to the disappearance of three other women in nearby Santa Ana. Trapp embarks on a dark journey that brings her face to face with a man who takes “a little piece of her soul.” Listen now at
